FY 2022 H-1B Cap Registration Begins March 8, 2021

The FY 2022 H-1B Cap Registration period will begin March 8, 2021, and end March 26, 2021.

The new H-1B cap registration final rule (86 FR 1676) modifying the H-1B cap selection process, amending current lottery procedures, and prioritizing prevailing wage takes effect on March 8, 2021. Our firm expects this to be the start date of the 2022 H-1B cap registration period, even if Biden withdraws the final rule.
